Pay Parking 

**NOTE: NEW paperless  Pay By Licence parking process**

The University of Victoria charges for parking in all campus parking lots Monday through Saturday.

Parking can be purchased with coin or credit cards through automated machines in the parking lot adjacent to the Phoenix Theatre and Fine Arts Building. There are also several parking meters for short term visitor parking. Weekly, monthly, term, and annual passes are available through   Campus Security Services.

Please note that paper permits will no longer be issued by the machines. Users must enter their licence plate number into the machines when paying. You will no longer need to return to your car afterwards and can enter directly into the theatre. For more information on this new process and the licence plate recognition monitoring program by Campus Security Services, read their  detailed description here. 

The revenue from pay parking offsets the cost of sustainable transportation programs at UVic, including subsidized student bus passes and cycling facilities. For more information contact  Campus Security Services at 250-721-6683.

The campus is accessible by BC Transit bus routes from anywhere in the city. The UVic bus terminal is located beside the UVic Bookstore, a 10-minute walk across campus from the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall. For more information and links to route maps and bus  schedules, see the  UVic Bus Routes page .
